Even though I didn’t intend to make a realistic owl when I was designing this piece, I simply had to know how many toes should be showing.
It seemed important, but pictures of owl feet were confusing — after looking at several, I still couldn’t tell if there should be two toes or three (per foot).
And then I found this:
“An Owl’s foot has four toes. When in flight, 3 of these toes face forward, and one backwards. When perched, or clutching prey, the outer front toe on each foot swivels to face the rear. It is able to do this because of a unique flexible joint.” ~ From the Owl Pages
Well played, owls, well played.
